I got a lot of use out of mine when I first moved to San Antonio. Now that I know my way around, I usually leave it at home to avoid losing a car window to a smash-and-grab.
It's great for trips to other cities, though. With the GPS in the car, I can make a reservation at a hotel and get right to the front door without ever making a wrong turn.
